Ra Ra Riot’s new sound caught me off guard when they premiered “Beta Love” the title track of their new album. It showed the new-found direction that the band had found. The song has grown on me a little since, but I’m not enamored by any means.
“When I Dream” is the latest cut to emerge from the album, and it’s a good mix of a raw r&b sound mixed in with their sound of old. It’s a more assuring combination that has me feeling a bit more warmly about the new album.
